Katy’s Kindness Card Drive

Hello and Welcome to the Kindness Campaign Card Drive and blog hop. Thank you so much for making it all the way through the hop to this stop. Although I am a paper crafter, this is not a crafty blog. I am the mom to the beautiful girl you have all hopped along for.

The Katy M. Murphy Foundation is the nonprofit organization I founded with my husband in honor of our forever 6 year old daughter Katy. Katy had a severe congenital heart defect and heart transplant that ultimately robbed her of her life at the tender age of six.

In those 6 years Katy enjoyed each and every day with a smile on her face and kindness in her heart. We hope to share a bit of her love and light with the world through her foundation.

One of the ways we plan to do that is with Katy’s Kindness Kits!

The kits are for children and their families who are living with a congenital heart defect (CHD) and are inpatient on the cardiac care unit at Boston Children’s Hospital. The foundation will be delivering kits to the hospital to help make the children and their families stay at the hospital easier, or kinder if you will. We are very excited to be able to include a handmade card with each kit.

Katy loved to craft especially when she got to use mommy’s supplies.img_2673

All the details for the card drive can be found HERE, as well as a list of AMAZING sponsors who have offered up some phenomenal prizes to be raffled off to those who submit cards. Please read the rules carefully. The card drive will run from February 14th thru April 15th.
